SOURCE: MY VW LUPO IS HUNTING
The hunting and clicking is caused by a stuck vapor canister purge valve. The valve is on a vacume line. When it gets stuck open too much air enters the engine at idle or low rpm. This will cause the engine to hunt and stall as soon as any load is put on it if you do not rev it hard. The engine will over-run when coming to a stop and probably stall. It can come and go putting the chack light on. The quick fix is to just un-plug the solenoid. facing the enginebay it is located on the left hand side just infront of the suspention mount it is half balck half blue on every lupo i have seen. unpluging it will mean the car is driveable again but the check light does come on. It is 100% safe as long as nothing else happens that goes undetected because the light is already on. The part is about £70/80 from VW, they may or may not know what you are talking about but i would not bother going to VW. The part is easy to find at a scrapyards if there are Lupos / Polos. A number of other VAG cars share the part as well. Any other problems come along to clublupo.co.uk

There are two ways to change this light:
One method is to get at it through the wheel well. You'll have to remove the plastic guard inside the wheel well. Then reach up and pinch the spring in and pop it out. You may have to take the wheel off to get more room and to see up easier
Another method is to take a thin flat blade screwdriver, wrap the blade in electrical tape or masking tape and to gently slide in behind the side marker on the same side as the mirror. The side marker has a spring-like clip on one side and two tabs on the other. This method is faster, but has a change of scratching your paint or breaking the tabs on the side marker

Sorry but that can only be answered by a repair garage. The answer depends upon:-
As your car is now 10 years old, it's likely that the light has just come on to tell you that the airbags have reached the end of their certified lifespan and need servicing. In practice what usually happens is that a VW garage or an airbag specialist will run diagnostics on the system and then re-certify the system for around another 5 years, resetting the airbag light to match. They can do this based on ongoing research by the airbag manufacturer using samples of airbags manufactured at the same time as yours. Many car insurers will refuse to pay out if the airbag light is ignored or if it has been reset by unqualified personnel.
The cost of the diagnostics and recertification is usually fairly low as it normally doesn't take long if all proves to be fine, but you can usually get it done for free if you get the same garage to do a major service or similar major work done at the same time, such as a cambelt replacement which will definitely be overdue if not already carried out.
